Every single film in The Conjuring‘s cinematic universe has been a smash hit at the box office thus far, with The Nun exceeding expectations this past weekend to amass the franchise’s biggest opening weekend to date. What’s next? Annabelle 3 is in the works, a Crooked Man spinoff is also being developed, and yes, we’re soon getting The Conjuring 3.
Speaking with Cinema Blend, producer Peter Safran updates that everything is moving along on the Conjuring 3 front, with David Leslie Johnson (The Conjuring 2) penning the script.
“It’s actually coming along great,” Safran told the site. “David Leslie Johnson is working on the screenplay, and I feel pretty confident they will have that one up and running next year.”
At this time, we don’t yet know where the third film will take Patrick Wilson‘s Ed Warren and Vera Farmiga‘s Lorraine Warren, but we at Bloody Disgusting have heard that James Wan will *not* be directing The Conjuring 3. A bummer, to be sure, but the Conjuring Universe has thus far had little problem snagging directors who are up to the task of continuing Wan’s work.
More as we learn it.
